In an interview with Xbox World 360
magazine (as reported by OXM UK
), the producer of 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand
, Julian Waddows, stated that he hopes Fiddy's new game will do for shooters what Burnout
did for the racing genre. He adds further that he wants the game to do, "What Diablo did for RPGs. We wanted to take all that makes the genre fun and exaggerate it." An over-the-top, exaggerated shooter? Oh no, that's never been done before. Seriously though, we kid Blood on the Sand. After all, we certainly wouldn't wish any game to be bad. In theory, there's nothing wrong with Waddows hopes. We just hope that his hopes come to fruition. Otherwise, we'll probably just lose hope altogether.
Editor's note: Since we're on the subject, let's get someone started on porting Diablo II to XBLA, mkay?
